I, Pastafari: A Flying Spaghetti Monster Story
Regal Hollywood 27 Theater 1 Sat, Oct 5 2:00 PM
With millions of believers worldwide, The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is the world’s fastest growing religion. Followers of the faith, Pastafarians, have been preaching the message of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM) since The Prophet Bobby Henderson’s "Open Letter to the Kansas School Board" went viral in 2005. In response to the school board's decision to teach evolution alongside creationism as equivalent scientific theories in science classes statewide, Mr. Henderson argued that it would then only be fair to teach other creation beliefs in science classes as well. Specifically, his belief: that a Flying Spaghetti Monster created the universe a few thousand years ago. I, PASTAFARI is a story about a few brave Pastafarians evangelizing the message of the FSM, while fighting against intolerant skeptics for the freedom to access privileges in law granted to other “real religions".

Description

In 1971, graduate student Gloria Orenstein receives a call from Surrealist artist Leonora Carrington that sparks a lifelong journey into art, ecofeminism and shamanism. A wife and mother of two writing her dissertation for New York University, Orenstein never expects to have her life transformed through female friendship. Carrington whisks Orenstein off to the cafés of Paris to meet Leonor Fini, Jane Graverol and Meret Oppenheim. Witnessing their visionary art and personal struggles leads Orenstein to write groundbreaking scholarly articles about women in Surrealism. A decade later, Orenstein is a beloved professor at the University of Southern California, creating the first international conference on Ecofeminism. She receives another call from a shaman who whisks her off to the mountaintops of Samiland to experience her own mystical journey. Art, animation and storytelling bring alive this delightful tale which illuminates an often unseen history of women in the arts
